    Check the Sunday Times today.

    It's in the books section, under Lifestyle.

    SQ21 is the Number 6 best-selling non-fiction title in this past week. We actually beat Mitch Albom's Tuesdays with Morrie!

    Our effervescent Yangfa had this to say in response:

    CONGRATULATIONS to everyone involved in the book (that's US!), which made it to no. 6 on the list this week.

    This was probably unexpected - who would have thought that it would be so well-received, & that we'd even be talking about a second print run/ edition? many of my straight friends & colleagues have said some very positive & encouraging things after reading our stories -- I certainly hope each of us have our own
    personal "SQ 21 anectdotes".

    my social work lecturer (to whom I gave a signed copy) liked how everyone, in their stories, shared their own ways of coping as they were coming out. she even asked
    for another copy for a colleague. I'm now even thinking of passing a copy to a friend who's brother is another newly-elected PAP MP. another straight friend sold his own copy to someone else, & wants me to sign a couple more for him & his friends.

      SQ21 is awesome and eye-opening. It really deserves to be a best-seller. Will you have another autograph session? I'm thinking of getting an autographed copy for my cousin! :)
